Abstract

A granular cell tumor of the breast parenchyma is a rare tumor accounting for 5-6% of all granular cell carcinoma and are mostly benign in nature. The malignant granular cell tumour is rare tumor that comprise 1-2% of all granular cell tumors. This is a case of a 35-year woman who presented with a palpable mass in the right breast. On wide local excision, a diagnosis of benign granular cell carcinoma was made. On follow up, with a disease free interval of one year, she developed local recurrence and she underwent simple mastectomy with adjuvant radiation therapy. Histopathological examination, confirmed benign granular carcinoma. This is one such case where histologically confirmed to be benign, but the clinical behaviour of the tumour favoured malignant variety. Hence adjuvant therapy should be considered for this benign appearing, malignant tumour
